What is total surrender?
“Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ”
The object of giving our all is to please the Lord. How do I offer my body as a living sacrifice that is pleasing to the Lord?
Surrender is giving God all that you have.
Surrender that is pleasing to God is not partial,
The outcome of giving our all is the knowledge of and conformity to the will of God.
Romans 12:2s: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Do you want to please the Lord, who saved you, who gave you joy in your heart, who gave you purpose and life, or would you rather please yourself and others first?
Father, show us all if there are areas of our life that have not been completely surrendered to You. Help us to live to please You alone.
This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
